This morning, I was doing shoulder press with free weights, and toward the end of my set, I felt a "pop" in between my shoulder blades right on my spine. It scared me, and I immediately felt some pain. Now this afternoon, the slow onset of pain you would expect has started to set in (i.e. trouble turning neck, moving head up and down, and stiffness)
I have taken advil and have been icing it thus far. I have a couple of questions:
1) Should I continue to ice, or use heat?
2) I assume this will be sore for at least a week or so. When would you think it would be OK to return to light workouts?
3) Do I even need to see a doctor/chiropractor? If so, what type of doctor?
Any advice would be GREATLY appreciated.
